Buckwheat microgreens are the young shoots of the buckwheat plant, harvested shortly after the first leaves appear. Providing health benefits in large doses, like high levels of vitamin B, iron, and antioxidants, these little leafy green vegetables are an excellent addition to your diet. Buckwheat microgreens have a gentle flavor that goes great with salads and other meals. Eat them fresh for optimal buckwheat microgreens nutrition.


Start by soaking buckwheat microgreens seeds in water for 12-24 hours. Spread them thickly over half to one inch of moist potting mix in a well-draining shallow container (about 5 inches by 5 inches). Press them in firmly. Mist with water, covering the container to retain moisture and block out the light. Set in a completely dark space for 3-4 days. Mist as needed to retain moisture. After a few inches of growth or when microgreens begin to lift the cover, expose them to direct light. Harvest with scissors in 6-12 days.


Buckwheat microgreens grow quickly and only require regular misting from planting to harvest. Adequate light after the blackout period is crucial for their proper growth, either in the form of sunlight or grow lights. Harvest buckwheat microgreens when they are about 2 to 3 inches tall, by cutting with scissors just above the soil. Consume the fresh microgreens immediately. By doing so, you will maximize their nutritional benefits.

Growing buckwheat microgreens at home is simple for anyone. It’s a sure way to get nutrition any time of the year, with a tasty treat. Put them in salads, or add them to cooked meals and sandwiches. They are the perfect supplement to your summer garden as well, saving space for those vegetables that require more room to grow.


How to Grow Microgreens

The general process of growing microgreens is fairly simple. The steps are as follows:

  1. Pre-soak seeds as specified on the packet
  2. Sprinkle seeds over a tray with a 1/2" to 1" layer of moist potting mix. Press into the soil to ensure good contact.
  3. Mist seeds with a spray bottle and cover to maintain moisture and block out light.
  4. Keep seeds covered for the blackout period. Setting the tray inside a cupboard works well. Check seeds during the blackout period and mist as needed to keep seeds moist.
  5. When the microgreens are a few inches tall or begin to live the cover, expose
    them to light, allowing the seedlings to develop and grow.
  6. When microgreens look ready, harvest with a pair of scissors and enjoy!
